Midship chocks for spring lines

Has anyone created midships openings in the bulwork for spring lines? I'm currently using one of the cockpit winches, but it would be really nice to have a point amidships to attach a spring line. I think I've seen them on Brewer 44's, but our 1974 Whitby doesn't have a good spot amidships.

On Free N Clear we opted for a cleat mounted on a slide. Seems to work quite well.

On Ocean Dove I installed two SCHAEFER 70-75 TRACK MOUNT CLEAT 1-1/4 INCH T TRACK.
This chock cleat mounts on 1- 1/4 x 3/16 Genoa T-Track so you can place it where you want it. Simply pull up on the spring-loaded locking pin and slide the cleat into its new position.
Easy adjustment Ideal for spring lines.

On MENEHUNE we mounted 2 each midship-chocks (Schaeffer) on each side.....one on each end of the Genoa track. Works well, and provides lots of flexibility (handles 1/2 inch line OK; I think 5/8 ths line may be too large).

Thanks! It sounds like a much simpler solution than cutting a hole for a chock and mounting a fixed cleat. I have a couple of older, track-mounted cleats, but they are much smaller than the Schaefer model recommended. Thanks, Roy B.

Our Whitby 42 Hull #186 has openings port and starboard with a large cleat approximately a foot or so further forward of the opening. I use them all the time for spring lines. We also have a sliding cleat on the rail on each side that I tie the roller furling jib sheets to.
